ELKHART, Ind. - Three people, including the gunman, have died after a shooting in a U.S. grocery store.

Elkhart police received a call about an active shooter at Martin's Super Market about 10 p.m. Wednesday Police Sgt. Trent Smith said at a news conference.

A gunman walked into the store and used a semi-automatic handgun to shoot and kill a woman, then walked to another aisle and shot and killed another woman, Smith said. One victim was an employee and appeared to be in her late teens or early 20s and the other was a shopper who appeared to be in her 40s, he said. They were found about 12 aisles apart.

Smith also said the shooter was pointing at a third person when police arrived. The gunman was killed by police. A gun and a large knife were found near the gunman, who Smith said lived in the area and was in his early 20s.
